A Chicago Wedding | The Intercontinental Hotel

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to photograph a Chicago wedding at the Intercontinental Hotel by O’hare Airport just outside of downtown Chicago. The event itself was incredible but what blew me away was the interior of this hotel. It was like

While the background is very simple the beautiful light coming from the wall of windows she’s looking at gives this shot a really beautiful soft feel. Of course on the wedding day it isn’t all about fun portraits, you need to be sure to capture important moments like the cake cutting too!
